National Park Week Quiz #5 Revealed: Railfans Delight
National Park Week Quiz #5 required you to identify the national park revealed by these clues:
If you have a full head, you are ready.
If you have something to keep to yourself, you don’t want it all over it.
The answer is Steamtown National Historic Site in downtown Scranton, Pennsylvania. Created in 1986, Steamtown occupies a 63-acre tract centered on the former Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad yard and preserves the remains of the roundhouse, switchyard, and other buildings as well as a collection of steam locomotives and railroad cars that tell the story of steam railroading in America in the 1900s.
Here is how the clues lead you to the answer:
A locomotive that has a full head of steam is ready to operate at full power. It is, in other words, really ready to go somewhere (“make tracks”).
If you’ve got a secret – that is, “something you want to keep to yourself” – you don’t want it spread all over town.
The popular NBC comedy TV series The Office depicts the working lives and antics of employees of the Scranton, Pennsylvania, branch of a fictional firm, the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company.
